Yes,stephannoi.The reason why child molestation gives much more serious harmful effect than statutory rape because the victim of child molestation is a prepubescent children and they don't have ability to understand sex act or consented to sex act.Also other reason for this is that they could suffer severe from internal wounds and injuries from rape and molestation.
